When it comes to ensuing your classroom or school is equitable and inclusive, many educators look outside of themselves to find the resources to ensure they are doing it correctly. This method may work in the short term, but in order to become an equitable and inclusive educator, you need to put in the work necessary to become an equitable and inclusive person, then you can simply teach naturally. In this session we will take a look at some ways to create inclusion and community in any classroom or school and then examine our own identities to determine how who we are effects institutional inequalities that contribute to the predictability of who succeeds and fails on our schools. “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” —Maya Angelou.
